Well slow but sure here I have Interchange aleast reading the headers in the
customer.txt file as well as the customer.pgsql.  But now it won't actually
create the database it just goes through the motions and errors out.  I know
I'm close but if anyone has any pointers it would be great.  The change that
seemed to make things move atleast more than it has was move the EOR to the
end of the catalog.cfg as seen below.  More info to come I'm sure....
